I recently purchased an X230 thinkpad.I am having some issues, specifically;a. the screen is a yellowy colour - this seems to only be at night, not during the day!b. the right click on the bottom of the touchpad does not work conistently - sometimes it acts like a left click instead of a right click - this is incovenient as i do a lot of editing work in WordI ran a Linux check and these issues did not occur - so I think it may be software related - I am using Windows 10 Pro.Does any one have suggestions?thanks

I have a 4 year old Lenovo Thinkpad X230 computer.  Since I upgraded to Windows 10 (two years ago?) my computer has randomly shut off with no warning.  There doesn't seem to be a pattern with regard to when or how this happens.  The computer starts normally every time.  This can happen upwards of 5 or 6 times in an hour (although sometimes it can go several days without shutting off). In the last year (since June 2016), the computer has been evaluated by three different technicians on three different occasions (June, October, January).  Each found no hardware issues, no issues with fuzz/dust, no obvious software issues, no malware or other viruses.  Personally, I have explored the answer on the internet and fiddled with the settings relating to sleep mode (among other suggestions) and nothing seems to have worked.  I recently was advised to revert to the original windows 10, undoing all the updates and additional installations that I've put on the computer.  I did this, and miraculously it helped (although it still shut off twice since then.  This was in February).  In the last two weeks, I was forced to upgrade back to normal and the problem has returned.  Additionally, the first person who looked at my computer (back in June 2016), told me that this was aparently a common problem with Windows 10 and that the only way to fix it was to revert to Windows 8.   I would like to not have to do this, if poss...

Hello,  I'm having some trouble with turning on my laptop. The problem originally started when some keys on my keyboard stopped working. I cleaned the keys, restarted my laptop, tried a previous restore point and then did a hard reset after nothing worked to fix my laptop.  After hard resetting, I tried turning on my laptop and it did not turn on. So far, I've plugged in my laptop into the adaptor, plugged the adaptor directly into the wall outlet, and removed the battery and plugged in the laptop. The one thing I have noticed with my laptop is that when I plug in the adaptor, the battery and sleep lights turn on for a moment, then the sleep light turns off, and the battery light will stay on momentarily but then it will blink off after a few seconds. What else should I do? Thank you

A:Lenovo Thinkpad x230 stuck on boot menu

I would need to see it to be sure, but my guess is that the hard disk was logically damaged.  That means the boot record or partition information was wiped out.  It could also be a disk hardware error.  Do you have a backup?

Apologies if this is reprising and earlier question on this topic. I have recently acquired an old-ish second-hand ThinkPad X230 [2325SWK build with a G2ET91WW (2.51) BIOS], accompanied by a ThinkPad UltraBase Series 3 docking station [P/N 0B67692] which has an empty 2" bay.I need advice on the following issues:1    The X230 currently has an SSD installed [Samsung 128GB MZ7TD128HAFV-000L1] which will not be large enough for the programs and program data that I have planned to install.  I would like to upgrade to a 1 1TB SSD, and I propose to clone the contents of the existing 128 GB drive to a 1 TB Samsung 850 Evo [MZ-75E1T0B].  Are there any SATA or other firmware issues that I should be aware of before acquiring the 1 TB drive, arranging for its cloning and for the replacement of the current 128 GB drive?2    I would like to populate the empty 2" bay on the UltraBase Series 3 docking station with an HDD, and the model I have in mind is a 2 TB Seagate BarraCuda Hard Drive [ST2000LM015].  Again, I'd like to know if there are any hardware, firmware or other issues before acquisition and installation.I'd be grateful for any help on either of these two issues in an Australian context.

Does some way exist to download drivers from official lenovo pages? For example, FTP with old drivers or something like that (I found FTP in this topic - https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/General-Discussion/Access-directories-on-ftp-site-ftp-software-ibm-com/... but there is nothing like drivers folder). Please do not write about (I know this possibilities):- others pages for drivers downloads - I want to download ONLY from official lenovo page- creating recovery media - because I want to install newer OS not Vista Thank you very much for usable answers.

About a week and a half ago, my laptop got its first ever virus since owning it for 5 years. So, I wiped it using a handy dandy data destruction software.  Got everything set back up, but now...none of my video editing software will work.  I think its a driver issue - i know i am missing at least a few of them since wiping. But i do not know which ones specifically i am missing.  Is there a way i can pull up a list of all the drivers i currently have, PLUS the ones i still need? Like, my aspect ratio.  Its in proportion, somewhat.  Its just a tad bit...stretched.  I use to know how to fix that, but now, for the life of me, i can not remember how to do it. I know i need a new computer, but i dont have the funds right now to get one.  Plus, this one suits me just fine.

I normally have a C:/, H:/, J:/, N:/, X:/, and Y:/ drive, but in a mysterious phenomenon I have lost all of those. I have work to save on those drives, and they are inaccessible. I have attempted to go to Disk Management, but I am denied "access rights," presumably as I am not a licensed IT guy. If there is anything that can be done, I need it done.

You needn't be a licensed (or even unlicensed) IT guy to use Disk Management, but I am guessing that you are using a work computer that is probably in a domain and you will need to get help from your IT department.

Hey Hi,  I am planning to upgrade my Thinkpad X230s memory to 8GB. I have few questions, it would be a great help if someone can help me.1) Is it better to use 2x4GB configuration or 1x8GB? What are the advantages? (Does Thinkpad X230 support dual channel configuration?)2) CPU-Z shows that my current RAM is running at 1.5 V. Can I put two 4GB RAM running at 1.35V? (Does Thinkpad X230 support DDR3L type memory?)3) What would happen if I use two RAM having different CAS latency? Thanks in advance.

Hi all, the Down and the Right arrows keys are stopped working appropriately. When I press the Down arrow key quickly 5 times, it not only jumps 5 lines, but jumps as if I pressed the Page Down button. The problem is similar in the case of the Right arrow: if I press it quickly 3-5 times, the cursor jumps to the end of the line, as if I pressed the End button. The space key has also a problem. If the cursor is inside a word, and I press the space quickly, it starts to separate the word. Example: ab[cursor]cdefghijkl => ab    cde f  ghijk l. I've tested different programs: Notepad++, MS Word, Android Studio, (even booted to Safe Mode) but the problem is the same in all programs. If I press the keys slowly, the problems described above do not appear. The OS is the latest Win10, latest drivers. The problem appeared cca. 2 weeks before, I don't think that I had changed any of the system settings. The other arrow keys are working properly.Model: Thinkpad x230, 2325-Y12. Thank you!Alex

There have been several identical issues that could be fixed with a former BIOS Update already in 2012 but apparently my system won't do it with this update... I refer to this thread: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X230-expresscard-adressing-eGPU/td-p/792909 I hope you guys can help me out or give me a hint what I could try more; I won't like to damage my system one more time with the DSDT so I hope there maybe is another option. Screenshot of my Device-Manager: ? Thanks in advance,Manuel

I want to use my laptop like a desktop so only with the 2 attached monitors and the lid closed. You can configure Windows so that shutting the lid doesn't turn it off but I still need to open it up to turn it on. My desk arrangement makes this a bit tricky (it's under a monitor stand).  If I buy the Ultrabase Series 3 Docking Station, a power button appears on the front. Would I be able to turn it on without opening the lid if I used that?

We got users with "clean install" Windows 10 on the ThinkPad Yoga 370 instead of factory image.  in Lenovo Settings, audio, dolby section, the presets that are in OEM load are all missing.  we tried uninstall Lenovo Settings, Conexant audio driver, SIF, reinstall, same things - the enable button is there, but no profiles for dynamic, movie, music, gaming, and voice. anyone have seen this issue (or on other machines?), any idea how to reinstall those?  i wonder whether we are missing some pieces.

Hi, I have a ThinkPad X230, which originally had Windows 7 installed on it.  When I accepted the upgrade to Windows 10, everything worked fine apart from one thing:  the built-in SD Card reader. When I insert an SD card into the reader, the computer eventually recognizes it as a SD card, but when I click on it I get the following message: "D:\ is not accessible.  A device attached to the system is not functioning." I have tried all kinds of things to get it to work, based on various other posts on this forum.  For example installing new drivers from Lenovo website, installing them in Compatibility Mode etc.  But none of these have fixed the issue.  If I right-click on the SD Card icon for my D: drive, and select Properties, it doesn't detect any used space or any free space. If I open Device Manager when there is a SD card inserted, I see "Ricoh SD Disk Device" under the section entitled "Disk Drives", and I see "Ricoh PCIe SD/MMC Host Controller" under the section entitled "Memory technology devices".  I also see " D:\" under the section entitled "Portable Devices". I updated my laptop's BIOS not long ago.  I have BIOS version 2.65. I have an mSATA card (about 120GB) for Windows OS and applications, and a separate 500GB traditional hard drive for my Data.  I have had this mSATA / HDD configuration since the very beginning. Does anybody have any idea what I need to do to fix this problem...

Hello everyone, Recently I purchased a second-handed ThinkPad-x230 with part number of 2324LZ4. The BIOS is oddly old (G1ET32WW), so I went to the support page and downloaded the latest BIOS update utility from here http://support.lenovo.com/us/zh/downloads/ds029187 with the version G2ETA8WW. When I run the utility, I got an error message "BIOS directory cannot be found". I also tried the USB update method, also similar message and to no avail. My question is, 1. It seems that the newest BIOS does not compactible to my x230 since the version starts with G2 while mine starts with G1. Is my assumption correct?2. If so, where could I found the right image?3. I found someone on the internet successfully flashed CoreBoot to replace the original BIOS. Is it safe? Thank you for your attention.

Hello, I just bough an old ThinkPad X230 yesterday and the machine came preloaded with Windows 8 Pro (There is also a Genuine Color-changing Stamp of Windows 8 applied to the base of the ThinkPad). I immediately updated to Windows 10 without any problems as the Windows was activated automatically and everything is working just fine now. However, I'm planning to replace the hdd originally installed in my X230 with a Samsung 850 EVO SSD to boost up performance, but I have no ideas what to do to keep my Windows genuine after installing Windows in the new SSD.There are posts confirm that the activation key is embedded into the bios of some sort so the Windows will be automatically activated no matter what kind of hardware change I make. Is this right? I really need your help and deeply appreciate all your information.Thank you

Using the latest win 10 install media your license is read from bios during a clean install. So your good.Remember to switch bios into uefi only and turn on secure boot (if not already enabled). If your new 850 evo is not blank, make sure to delete all partitions on it during win install to get a GPT partition table. I also suggest you update the BIOS now before you start the swap.
